  1. The Inbetweeners is a companion to the network's hit Awkward. And equally funny. [27 Aug 2012, p.48]

    With many clichés coming straight from romantic comedy films, A to Z gets slightly cheesy at times, but Feldman and Milioti's easy chemistry makes their banter believable and, well, downright adorable.
  2. Here we have the spirit and courage of the settlers, only without the time to settle. It's CBS after all, not Conestoga. [9 May 2011, p.39]

  3. The visual components of the show—particularly the armament and the battle scenes—are sleek enough to excite younger viewers. But the plots and characters in Space are as thin as the air up there, and might leave adults floating out in the cold.
  4. What I found in the first two shows was a lot of smart, pointed humor aimed at corporate bureaucracy, mendacity and absurdity. I didn't even notice till late in the second episode that the animation itself was something less than eye-popping.
  5. The show is solidly American. [9 May 2011, p.39]

  6. The show needs work-—why all the breast jokes?-—but [Lithgow and Curtin] don't.
  7. Forget the tech background; the cohosts are a natural comedy team. That's why this show is a hoot, even if it's a little like grown-ups playing in a sandbox.
  8. Gregg has a deadpan ease that makes the engine purr. And his team is good-looking and stamped with just enough personality and humor: Without killing the fun, they ground the show. [14 Oct 2013, p.43]

  9. Season 3 will bring on two new wives, but the show will probably always belong to NeNe Leakes. [11 Oct 2010, p.38]
    • People Weekly
  10. [A] pleasurable, cheeky new crime drama. [21 Oct 2013, p.47]
    • People Weekly
  11. This is all good, capering, costume-ball fun, even if Mary's life was dismal. My chief complaint is that pretty Adelaide Kane, as Mary, lacks any spirit or presence. [21 Oct 2013, p.50]
    • People Weekly
  12. The girls, who keep breathlessly repeating the phrase "high fashion" as if it were a mantra, nonetheless behave as they always do, which is most of the fun. [13 Sep 2010, p.48]

    Devotees are probably poised to dismiss the adaptation out of hand, but I found enough funny business here to overcome my sales resistance.
  13. Burton and Taylor is a wry, bittersweet take on a celebrated Hollywood romance. [21 Oct 2013, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  14. This is Amazing Race of the damned, with something of the open-ended, Pandora's-box mystery of Lost, and it has the potential for out-there adventure. [23 Apr 2007, p.37]
    • People Weekly
  15. If [Metcalf's] character can develop into more than a foil, it may be worth tuning in to this show for a weekly update.
  16. In its second season this gritty frontier drama still boasts the most colorfully eccentric ensemble of any show on TV. But Al Swearengen, the malignly glowering saloon boss, played to the hilt by Golden Globe winner Ian McShane, is first among equals.
  17. The conflict often seems manufactured, but Cowell continues to lift this above the Star Search level.
  18. Think of it as a newsmagazine program unbound by considerations of taste or balance.
  19. This air of finality throws the many small, fine details of Parker's performance, the main reason for the show's existence, into sharp relief. [13 Aug 2012, p.42]

  20. It's a good show, powerfully acted--especially by Katy Segal as tough mama Gemma--and true to its convictions. [20 Sep 2010, p.52]
    • People Weekly
  21. A tricky show with serious potential. [5 Mar 2012, p.45]
    • People Weekly
  22. Fun, swanky nonsense.
  23. The history behind the story is tremendous--you feel its pulse. [5 Aug 2013, p.48]
    • People Weekly
  24. This FOX version of a family sitcom isn't as irreverent or formula-free as it thinks--ABC's "The Middle" is actually edgier--but it scores points for never resorting to mere cuteness and for throwing in a bizarre sight gag about frozen squirrels.
    • People Weekly
  25. Set on the eve of the 1936 abdication crisis, it has melodramatic bustle and tender affection for its characters--of all classes. [18 Apr 2011, p.46]
    • People Weekly
  26. A pallid imitation of The Larry Sanders Show, the series works best when its real-life guests are funny.
  27. A fun buzz. [1 Jul 2013, p.36]
    • People Weekly
  28. The badinage with his wife plays nice and easy, like Home Improvement, while that with his parents and brother across the street has more of a Seinfeldian silliness.
